The Morrighan - Goddess by ravynnephelan The Morrighan - Goddess by ravynnephelan
Several weeks ago, I painted a wee 'Morrighan' ACEO. This painting is one of the rare few that I have decided to keep for myself. At the time, my darling sister, Mande, was understanding, but also disappointed because she wish to buy the artwork and make Morrighan her own. Both of us have a strong personal and spiritual connection to the Morrighan, so it only seemed right that for her birthday I gift her with a Morrighan painting of her own.

Size: 5"x7"
Medium: Acrylics
prints available at [link]

I love this piece. The Morrighan is my personal goddess and I, too, have a strong connection to her.

You've definitely done a stunning portrait of her. I think it suits quite well. :-) I love all the feathering around her eyes, the details in her bodice and sword. And I just have to love her hair...with the exception of some length, it's about the same as my own. :-)

Kind of has a Red Sonja thing going in colouring, and, apparently, in temperament as well!

I've heard of the Morrighan but I can't place it. Regardless, I love the design you came up with here and the powerful expression on her face. The colors are gorgeous and vivid but I think my favorite part is definitely her mask. :)

You know, I always love your work, but this one even more then the others, and for much the same reason that she is special to you and your sister. Who, by the way, is incredibly lucky to have you make something this wonderful for her.

Also I noticed you spell the name the same way I always do, and not the more commonly seen "Morrigan." :)

Are you sure you won't concider offering this as a print hon, because I would love to have a copy of this piece!!!
